What is Yoga Therapy?

Below is the official definition of Yoga Therapy according to the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT)

“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga.”

A yoga therapist is trained to work individually with clients to help them live the happiest, healthiest life possible. We use yogic tools, such as movement, breath work and meditation while focusing on gratitude, compassion, empathy and other tenets of yoga.

Mary is a C-IAYT – Certified Yoga Therapist recognized by the International Association of Yoga Therapists. If you are looking for Yoga Therapy in Nashville, please schedule an appointment using the form below.

Difference Between Private Yoga and YT

A yoga therapist helps adapts the pratices , philosophies and tenets of yoga to an individual who is seeking care for a specific condition not usually addressed in a group class. A yoga therapy (YT) session is a much more personal experience and requires a practitioner who is highly skilled and trained specifically in the art and science of YT.

A private yoga class offers something in between YT and a group yoga class. It may be individualized to some extent to meet the needs of the student, but the level of planning for a private yoga class is less than that of a YT client. Some students prefer private yoga classes over group classes because of the privacy and the fact that the teacher can focus on their desired areas.

What to Expect with YT

  1. After you register for an initial session using the payment options below, you’ll be contacted via email and asked to fill out a short questionnaire to let us know how we can best assist you. You’ll have an opportunity to tell us about the issues for which you are seeking yoga therapy (YT).
  2. We will schedule your initial YT session.
  3. At the first session, we will discuss your issues (verbal assessment) and may perform some tests, such as a postural assessment or range of motion or strength testing. These are non-invasive and you will never be asked to do anything that you are uncomfortable doing.
  4. You’ll leave the session with a few items to work on that may benefit you. For example, we may recommend a few specific yoga poses, exercises, breathing exercises or easy meditations.
  5. We will take the information we learned from your first visit and create an initial yoga therapy plan. This will be sent to you via email, but we highly recommend you schedule at least 2 more visits.
  6. In the 2nd visit, we will go over everything in the YT plan with you.
  7. In the 3rd visit, we will review your progress, fine tune any areas of the plan that need revisiting, and possibly regress or progress your plan, depending on the therapy results.
  8. Clients are welcomed and encouraged to visit weekly if that fits with their schedule and budget, so that we can provide optimal assistance. However,  we recognize that this doesn’t fit everyone’s budget or schedule. In these cases, 3 visits are usually sufficient to get a home therapy plan started and subsequent visits can be scheduled as needed.


Please see prices below. For your first yoga therapy session, you must select “1st Yoga Therapy” pricing. For visits beyond your first session, you will select “Follow-up” pricing. Private clients and yoga therapy clients must pre-pay for all services. Appointments must be kept or cancelled 24 hours prior to the appointment time or the full fee will be forfeited. No refund will be issued for appointments not cancelled within 24 hours.
